PREVIEW: The 3rd EAN Congress

Conference details: June 24-27, 2017, Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

The European Academy of Neurology (EAN) is the organisation that unites and supports Neurologists across Europe. Currently, 47 European national neurological societies as well as 800 individuals are registered members of the EAN. Thus, the EAN represents more than 21,000 European Neurologists.

We are pleased to invite you to this great annual event on behalf of the EAN and the Netherlands Society of Neurology. Amsterdam is one of the world’s most vibrant capitals, with an impressive cultural, historical, scientific and economic scene. Settled as a small fishing village in the late 12th century, Amsterdam became one of the most important ports in the world during the 17th century, the Dutch Golden Age, a result of its innovative developments in trade. Since then, it has been a leading trading and cultural city, where art, commerce, creativity and tolerance are guiding principles.

The 3rd EAN Congress in Amsterdam will provide the ideal platform for continuing education in all fields of neurology, covering a broad spectrum of topics with state-of-the-art lectures by renowned experts. The EAN strives to provide the highest quality of continuing medical education and to open professional education opportunities. The Overarching Theme of the 2017 Congress is Outcome measures in neurology.
